The Stages of Language Development

Did you know that early childhood education begins at birth? As soon as your child enters the world, he or she is soaking up knowledge from the world around him or her. You can begin preparing your child for preschool in Pembroke Pines even before his or her first birthday. The first stage of your child’s early education in language is the phonation stage. From one to two months, your child will develop vowel and throaty sounds.

Then, as the early education expert in this video explains, your child will enter the “goo” stage from two to three months. Here, you’ll hear the cooing sounds that are typical for babies. As your child grows, his or her babbling will gradually take on the rhythms of speech and gestures will be used to communicate. Most children say their first one or two words at around the time of the first birthday.
